The Downtown Marketplace is something extra special. Every Saturday food vendors, artisans, volunteers, animal shelter advocates come together to enrich our community. The outdoor marketplace provides a place for a leisurely stroll, to buy a one of kind gift, to support your neighborhood farms, to dance in the streets and of course the list may go on. I think the markets gets overlooked when we try and figure out what to do with our Saturday. Well - bring it back on your radar. I have been going since Spring, no seniority at all. But have loved each time I go - even when it's a 100 degrees. The folks are amazing, always in high spirits. And there is usually something new I have never seen, just look. I hope you can come join us this Saturday. Check out several of the fantastic vendors; Liz Smith the lovely Jeweler who has etched the cooper necklace below, Morris Springer the wood turner, always a wonderment to me,J.W. Monteith who creates antique Post Office banks and the marvelous Street Chefs (Tally has their own booming food cart frenzy). I have also included a bit of my work, in fact I have a new batch of everything this week.
